The Montreal native release "Born" in late 2009. It draws from a diverse selection of musical genres including electronica, trip-hop, punk and pop, while staying firmly rooted in the grit, guts, and glory of one of early Guns N’ Roses. Coupled with producer Vikas Kohli, the partnership has produced an album that refuses to stay within a narrow definition of rock.
